The Alkaline Trio, who I had the good fortune to see live on stage in Cincinnati in 2006:

And the Brian Jonestown Massacre, who I saw in Columbus 2002 and in Cleveland 2009:

I used to have that disc...and liked this cover by Soul Asylum:

Yeah, that's a good one DB... something made me remember that album a while back and I downloaded it on iTunes. Some great tracks from Soundgarden, Breeders, Uncle Tupelo and Sonic Youth on there.

Dry the River has really struck my fancy lately - somewhat similar to Of Monsters and Men, but better (New Ceremony, Bible Belt). Balto's also pretty great - folk rock performed by some guys I knew in college (Monuments, Cavalry). I wouldn't be surprised if they hit it big soon.



I will be accepting requests for banjo videos on this thread. MTA did not get the attention deserved.

I'm in the band Instant Empire (from Denver) ... some of you might enjoy our music. It's some sort of combination of Indie Rock and Power Pop (internally in the band we constantly argue about what "genre" we fall into). Regardless ... we play around Denver all the time. If you enjoy music like Modest Mouse, Built to Spill, Pinkerton-era Weezer, Bright Eyes, The National ... etc., you might enjoy us.

Here's a recent video we recorded live for CPR's OpenAir:

Happy listening...

Brian - Howe are BJM shows? I just discovered this band in the last few years. Sound is so original, first time I heard them, I was shocked they were a modern band and not from the 60's. Lead singer sounds like he has a tendancy to be abrasive and volatile at times, random outbursts on stage, verbal altercations with fans in crowd. I also read he's gotten sober recently, so that might've resolved things.....

Saw them 2 years ago in Denver. A definite "energy" amongst Anton and the band, but all of the fireworks of the old days were gone. I'd go again - still great music.

EDIT: Brian - What did you think?!

Thanks dude for the reminder. Been waiting impatiently for it to finally happen. Caught your post Sunday night. Spent most of Monday with the door to my office closed, listening to it on repeat through my Grados.

Saw them 6 or 7 years ago somewhere in Denver. It was rough. They blew the start on half their songs and had all kinds of technical difficulties through the show. That's rock and roll. Matt Hollywood had already left the band due to Anton being an ass. I think it was around the time when Anton was at rock bottom, a couple years after the movie DIG was released. Saw them in D-town again a year or two ago (with the sober Anton, and Matt Hollywood back in the lineup) and they sounded great.

A few of my favorite BJM tracks from the years. Apologies if I posted these before somewhere in the archives of this thread...

Speaking of amazing live shows...

If you walk away from a Flogging Molly show anything less than piss-drunk with a giant smile on your face and a love for the Irish, well, there be something wrong with ye.
